It was further reported that the essence of keeping surveillance on Arase was because he allegedly presided over the extra-judicial killings of over 1,000 Biafrans.
In a statement released by the leadership of the movement on Thursday, June 23, 2016, the ex-IGP is being monitored in anticipation of a warrant order of arrest from the International Criminal Court.
The IPOB also disclosed that it has directed all its members worldwide to closely monitor the movements and whereabouts of the retired IGP to facilitate his arrest and arraignment as soon as the warrant is issued.

It was further reported that the essence of keeping surveillance on Arase was because he allegedly presided over the extra-judicial killings of over 1,000 Biafrans between July, 2015 and May 30, 2016.
“it is very important to keep a record of his movements so that when the ICC finally issues the long-awaited international warrant order for his arrest, it will be easy to locate, apprehend, handcuff and fly him to the Hague for prosecution at the ICC,” the statement reads.
“If anyone happens to see him fleeing the country, please make calls to alert IPOB officials. For those who do not know the atrocious crimes committed by him (Arase), we have posted two of his pictures and the pictures of some of the victims he shot dead because we believe that pictures speak more than a thousand words,” the statement reads further.
IPOB's spokesman, Dr. Clifford Iroegbu further said the movement has directed that Arase’s whereabouts must also be monitored and logged-in with the office of IPOB headquarters, Victoria, Spain.
